Oppo introduced a number of new devices and tech at its Inno Day 2022 event. One such system was MariSilicon Y. the current chipset by OPPO provides much better audio quality as compared to the Exynos 2200 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Whereas Exynos 2200 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 have built-in Bluetooth solutions. The audio quality of MariSilicon Y is superior to Bluetooth. For this reason, the company has named the chipset ‘Flagship Bluetooth Audio SoC’. The company claims that the new system consists of various industry-first features.
The MariSilicon Y by Oppo is based on N6RF fabrication technology. The N6RF fabrication tech is provided by TSMC. It is speculated that chipsets based on this technology utilize less power and supply enhanced network reception. One interesting thing to notice here about MariSilicon Y is its data transfer rate i.e., 12Mbps. It is the maximum Bluetooth bandwidth in the industry.
URLC (Ultra Resolution Lossless Codec) is the audio codec by OPPO. The MariSilicon Y will use URLC to provide excellent sound quality and an enhanced audio experience without compromising on the battery of the device. In contrast to Samsung Seamless Codec HiFi’s 16-bit 44.1KHz, the MariSilicon Y offers 24-bit/192kHz data transfer speed for audio. Oppo claims this speed to be the first of its kind in the industry.
Furthermore, the chip holds 590GOPS (Giga operations per second) of computing power. Do note here that we have no data about the processing power of Bluetooth chipsets in mobile phones’ SoCs, so we can’t say whether these numbers claimed by Oppo are good or bad. In addition to this, Oppo mentioned that MariSilicon Y is 33% small in size. It uses 66% less power. But again there are no reference points for comparison. Might be OPPO is using the built-in Bluetooth solutions in chipsets designed by Qualcomm and MediaTek as a reference.
The webpage of Oppo mentions that the MariSIlicon Y will be utilized in future flagship devices. Given the specifications of this chipset, we can expect a much better experience compared to other smartphones having built-in Bluetooth solutions.
